My DH is going out for board games. I will have a hamburger steak with tomato and cucumber salad. He hates cucumber and raw tomato. Maybe some sauteed 'shrooms. He's not very fond of those either. I haven't decided what to do with potato.

Leftovers for me. Haven't decided what it will be though. Have chili, pizza, and chicken available. I'll see what I'm in the mood for when I open the fridge.

Do you crisp them in a frying pan, using a plate to flip them? Flour tortillas? Small or large?

I've done them that way when I had my 10" cast iron skillet, but it can be tricky. I have an 8" now which would be easier, I think. It can also be done toasting the bottom on the top of the stove, and toasting the top in the oven.

I like your ingredients. I used taco meat mix, cheddar and a little salsa. I'll have to try it your way.

At our restaurant we lay one tortilla on the grill and lay the cheese over the whole area. Then we put the other ingredients on one half and once the cheese starts to melt we fold it over. Then you can just flip it one more time with a spatula, and cut it in three or four when you are done.

We're having burgers and potato skins. The potatoes are roasted and ready to toss in the oven, the burgers are awaiting the frying pan. I'm hungry and can't wait for Ken to get home.

Excellent idea! Thanks.
